Masses for Feast of the Assumption
Monday, August 14, 5:30pm Vigil
Tuesday, August 15, 7:00am, 12:05pm, 7:30pm (Sung Mass with Choir)


Dear Friends in Christ,
  
Of all the feasts celebrated by the Church in honor of Our Lady, the two most important are the Immaculate Conception in December and the Assumption in August.
   As a parish church dedicated to the Virgin Mary, we should celebrate these feasts with extra devotion. On Tuesday, August 15, our choir will join us as we honor our patroness with a special sung Mass for the Feast of the Assumption of the Blessed Virgin Mary at 7:30 in the evening.
   A reception will follow in the Hitchcock Room to celebrate the painting of the Church.
   Please be sure to join us for this special celebration in honor of Our Lady.
                                                                 Sincerely in Christ,
                                                                 Father La Pastina

Daily Mass in the Summer

   Each summer we celebrate our daily Masses in the Chapel in order to save on our air conditioning bill.
   This year we will continue to celebrate daily Mass in the Chapel for an additional reason. Masses in the Chapel will give our painters better access to the Church in order to complete the painting of the sanctuary in a timely fashion.
   Daily Masses will continue to be held in the Chapel until Monday, September 25.
